Celtic vs Heart of Midlothian : Heart of Midlothian attacking midfielder Sean Clare has told The Edinburgh Evening News that he is not worried about facing Celtic at Celtic Park this afternoon.
Celtic will take on Hearts at Celtic Park in the Scottish Premiership in a few hours’ time.
While the Hoops have won both of their league games so far this season, Hearts have picked up only a point from their opening two matches.
With time running out in the Scottish transfer window, will Celtic add to their squad? Prior to the Hearts match, Neil Lennon has been discussing Celtic’s targets in the market:

We need presence, quality and personality on the pitch. We are hoping the ones that have come in can settle and can be a success here.
It’s just that he’s finding it difficult right now to get into the squad. I can’t pick six wingers.
Our wide men have been playing so well and we’ve been scoring goals. We look a threat. We have good pace in the team, something which Mikey brings to us.
Celtic host Heart of Midlothian on Sunday afternoon, as they return to league action following games in the Betfred Cup and Europa League.
Both teams come into the game following wins last weekend in the cup, with Celtic scraping by Dunfermline and Hearts putting aside Motherwell.
The Edinburgh side were very impressive against Motherwell in treacherous conditions as they came 2-1 winners, with goals from Micheal Smith and Conor Washington.
Once again, the Hoops have a quick turnaround, with Sunday’s game their third in eight days.
Thursday’s match was pleasing on the eye for supporters, with Neil Lennon’s men completely controlling the game.
Solid performances from James Forrest, Odsonne Edouard, Mikey Johnston and particularly Kris Ajer, sent the Hoops faithful home happy.
However Neil Lennon has no time to have an eye on next Thursday’s return leg against AIK, as Hearts have proved one of Celtic’s toughest opponents in recent years.
